Volunteering in Dorset

Volunteers are the life blood of the Dorset Blind Association. Much of what we do is only possible with volunteer help, and we really appreciate and know how lucky we are to have our dedicated volunteers.


400+ Volunteers

Over 500 people volunteer to help in one or more of our services and between them donate around 42,000 hours of time each year.

We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities. There is something to suit everyone, wherever you live, whatever your age and however much time you have.

90 %

Over 90% of our volunteers feel that their volunteering gives them a sense of accomplishment, with a similar number feeling that, through their volunteering, they were making a real positive contribution to their local community.

" Volunteering for the Dorset Blind Association has made me appreciate my own good health. I have a lot of admiration and respect for the visually impaired and the way that they cope.
